How would you feel if one of your close friends outed one of your big secrets on national television?

Well if you ask Karl Stefanovic, not great!

You may remember last year that Karl’s former Channel Nine colleague and gossip guru Richard Reid appeared on and actually won the show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

And of course, being the gossip king that he is, during his time on the reality program Richard dished on some of the industry’s big secrets – one of these being about Karl and his hair.

At the time Richard told his campmates (and everyone watching at home) that Karl had actually taken time off work to get hair plugs and that he’d even caught Karlos using spray on hair once in a dressing room.

Ever since, it’s been a bit of a punch line for Karl’s mates, including his new Today co-host Allison Langdon who took a cheeky dig just the other day live on air!

So how did Karl feel when he heard Richard Reid’s comments on IAC? Jackie decided to find out when Karl and Allison both joined the Kyle and Jackie O Show this morning.

“Richard Reid was the one that outed you originally,” Jackie said on air this morning.

“Oh Richard Reid…,” Karl began.

“When Richard mentioned that on ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ what were your thoughts on that Karl?” Jackie asked.

In true Karl Stefanovic fashion, he didn’t hold back with his response.

“Richard and I have had a beautiful relationship over many years and well I’ll just say this, I never really saw him in person because he’s always too busy flapping about,” Karl explained.

“And so when he said it I thought, I just tried to turn on another network because I just wanted to watch something else. And then he said it and I had to turn off that show and I just thought, ‘You are just a tosser’.”

Ouch! Tell us how you really feel Karl!

“Richard Reid is a tosser,” he continued. “Of the highest order.”

Of course, Karl is a good sport and no doubt he was joking! After all, he’s always the first one to laugh at himself.

If it makes you feel any better Karl, Richard did tell Kyle and Jackie O last year that he regretted outing the secret… So there’s that!
